WHY IS PREVENTION IMPORTANT?
Treating Gum Disease
75% of adult tooth loss is caused by gum disease and at least 80% of the population has some degree of gum disease. This disease is an infection of the gums and jawbones and is caused by the colonization of bacteria underneath the plaque/calculus on your teeth. Often there are no noticeable symptoms, until the symptoms have progressed to an irreversible stage. A dentist or hygienist must do a thorough and complete examination to detect gum disease, especially in its early stages.
Bacteria and the chemical by-products that the body uses to fight these bacteria can enter the blood stream and cause serious problems in distant parts of the body. In fact, gum disease has been linked to heart disease, stroke, diabetes, pre-mature births, and low birth weight.
